an se fan, 26 Apr 200912 mpx is for marketing it's eyecatching everybody speak and will speak of it and in three yea... moredon't forget that sony mastered the oled and a huge number of technologies that start this year in india and in the whole world

Just wait for the 28 may 2009 to know the entertainment unlimited strategy, this phone's full specs and the A300 operating systém for the non-smartphone. :)
IMHO, this phone is good at its very own 12mpx camera capability ONLY..its just like the old k850i before...when we see the specs, we'll feel that the phone is worth to buy but its not actually..well, am not an SE basher, but what i can say here that SE did a good job, but not great enough..well, its just an opinion..
Somebody tell me whether this phone may be or will be having a Dual Sim or Twin Sim.
´Right after Apple declared their exuberant financial health, Samsung published the summary of their financial Q1 2009. The report indicates that the company has made profit again...´
and all the reps in their cubicle :)))
if you are here to read ´users´ opinion - get real - this phone is not released yet.
if you looking for news you should read the industry publications - but I guess it is hard for you to follow. :)))
˝The company plans cutting down approximately €400 million (approximately $516 million USD) in expenses, which will also result in cutting 2,000 people from their jobs.˝
Who will make the Idou by October?
with 1000mAh battery!
This phone will not be released this year - that is my prediction.
29mm in the SLR/DSLR standards (full frame) is wide!
You do your research.
50mm considered NORMAL! :))
he sensor size of camera phones are so small that the quality of a digital camera so much better since the sensor size much larger and the electronics much more advanced.
The DLRs are has so much bigger sensors that it is pointless to compare.
The compact digital cameras already have much larges sensors and lenses and that itself enough to outperform the phones. The much more advances electronics just increases the difference.
A relatively good compact camera is about 400-500 USD.
(DSLR 1500 and up)
You pay for performance and quality when you get a digital camera - a phone will not produce similar quality.
That is the reason that today a 12mp phone camera is pointless. Much better to have a 5-8mp phone with great lens and less dense sensor - better quality.
12mp sensor more dense producing more noise and artifact with out the benefit of useful resolution.
For normal size print (8.5x11 or A4 - people rarely print this size or larger) 5-8mp is more than enough resolution.
12mp is just a PR/ / SALES gimmick without merit - actually it has disadvantage since with the same technology an 8mp sensor would produce a much better image!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2009Its obvious that u dnt do enuf reserch b4 u post.nokia is nt d first wit wide angle lense cos,... morehaha i would hardly consider 29mm as wide angle since standard cameras are 28mm. Why don't you do YOUR research.

can anyone tell me the difference of the two except for the pixel count? i mean, for me, its almost the same!
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2009You what i dont like about samsung omniaHD? its design.. the glossy plastic just look cheap.
... morewill yah i didn't like the Omnia HD design..IDOU is much more better but like you said
the specs of Omnia HD are much better then IDOU
if IDOU didn't use Exmor and OMAP3 then it's nothing but a design..
as for the picture that was taken by IDOU at 9MP yah it wasn't nice but that also because of the low light of the place and the thing that the user toke shot of the picture it also will effect on the picture's quality as you see at n86's picture there is many lights in the place and the building looks nice which make the picture looks very nice and high quality and less noise

they are both great!

nice pic taken by n86!!
i think the lens will be the same quality as exmor..

but in terms of specs omniaHD is far better than Idou (if idou will be not using exmor+omap3)
if ever idou will use it.. it will be tie.
IDOU = Camera
OmniaHD = Video Recording
check out this picture taken by n86 8mp
only 8mp, but look at how little noise there is. i have never seen a photo from a cameraphone that comes anywhere near this quality. and still no samples from idou. not looking good for SE
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2009thanks man..
well, everyone has its own opinions..
1.3 to 8mp (from 640x480 to 3264x2448... morewell if Idou didn't become what i hoped so then i will go to Omnia HD ^_^
but i will still keep hoping that SE will make a better phone cause i'm SE fan and forever :P
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2009it will use Exmor and OMAP3 thats why Im sure it will be the best phone ever SE RULEi hope it will.. lets see on May 28.
though it depends on the user, i can't imagine anyone viewing pictures in an environment where a difference between 8mp and 12mp would be noticeable. e.g. on a large computer screen, printing a4 size... the difference won't be visible.
can anyone suggest when the difference WOULD be noticeable?
and for people saying you can't compare cameraphones to cameras, this is true for now. but for gods sake look at how fast the market is developing. 10 years ago phones had b&w screens. at this rate, in a few years time phones will be able to compete with cameras!! no doubt. but not by simply adding more megapixels. that is why i see this phone as pointless. nokia are actually trying to innovate the market with wide angle lens and variable aperture and i admire them for that. i don't think people realise what a difference this will make to quality, and it is another step towards competing with cameras. all other companies will soon be following suit and will make further improvements and thus the market will take another step forward, thanks to nokia.
